A tool, not a toy!

The computer is a tool not a toy. I tell that to my kids often, and very often I fall in the trap as to use it as a toy. It gives me a way to "talk" and be heard. I've asked the Lord to help me to be more quiet, careful with my words and submissive to my husband, but often the blog, gives me a way of expressing .... which is good, but my intentions I need to guard, because my heart deceives me and this blog even , gives me a voice to express only what I want people to know about me. It could give an impression to someone of a life that I do not live fully yet. I have to be careful. My heart loves the praise, and yet the glory is being stolen from the One who deserves it. Let my right hand not know what my left hand does... and yet I feel the need to publish it?... why? to receive glory?, the applause of my friends? to get the reward here on earth?... Or should I really keep quiet, and let my life speak without me having to speak. Let my life be a witness of Jesus Christ, and my words few.

Do I write many times for my glory? or to glorify Him?... Will He be more glorified without words or with my quiet obedience?

The computer is a tool, not a toy, and often, I am using it as a toy, to entertain myself with self gratifying posts, with selfish motives and with the misuse of the time He has giving me.
Do my kids and my family, spend a lot of time in the computer? Not yet, but I do not want that to be my life, so trying to live by example, I have to use it as a tool ... not as a toy. So if I write here not so often.... please bear with me I am in a learning process.

15 YEARS!!

15 years have passed since I said "I DO". It has been an adventure. With all that comes with a marriage. But with all, I will marry him again. We have a great life together, with two wonderful kids, who celebrated with us yesterday making that day, a very special one with the help of "Abu". They gave us a very romantic dinner of cheese fondue with a beautifully decorated table, the "wedding march" as a background and for us to pretend to enter "the church" (or in this case the dining room), then we had to dance. We usually go out for a dinner on our anniversary, but this one, was a special one. They got out the very nice wine glasses and made us feel super special.. they too.. were SO excited to make everything perfect. My mom was a great treat to the celebration, since she was the one orchestrating all. It was really fun!. And since she is here, this Saturday, my husband and friend, is inviting me to see "The Nutcracker"!! . And we'll stay in Montreal for a night. This will be very special too.
15 years of marriage, and looking forward to many many more with him!

So cool!

We went this week to see the Olympic torch pass very close to my house. It was an amazing experience!, there was a party with music, flags, food, a parade, street artists blowing fire. People very excited to have a glimpse at the torch. It was super fun!. The runner passed by us really close. My camera of course ran out of batteries, but I'll post some pictures later from my mom's camera. Everyone wanted to touch it, but my boys, days before at the mall got to hold it and took a picture with it (which I do not know how to put in my computer!). It was a one in a lifetime experience... I do not know when we'll see something like this again..... and in my own little town!.. walking distance in the summer!. The kids LOVED IT!!!
